International Press Brief

Elections in Brazil

On October 7th, Brazil will vote to elect the next President in an atmosphere of deep polarization in the country. The different polls predict the passage of Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) and Fernando Hadad (EN) to the second round, with an advantage for the radical-right candidate. The intense debate of the election campaign focused not only on the themes and programs of the candidates, but also in major court cases and the future of Brazilian political regime.

Swedish Elections

The Swedish general election, on the 9th of September, gave the Social-Democrats first place, albeit with their worst result ever (28.4%). The Moderates followed at 19.8% and the Sweden Democrats – a far-right party, in third place, at 17.6%. What impact will this outcome have on the country and in Europe?
